Editing in the Age of the Amateur
By Helga Schier — Linked in
Self-publishing changed things. As traditional publishers take on fewer projects, more writers choose to take matters into their own hands and self-publish. Today, every single good book can and will find its readers. And that’s a good thing.
Trouble is, every single not-so-good book can, too.

Finding a Book Editor
Great books are the product of so much more than just a great idea. Behind almost every literary success is a great team and, aside from the author, there’s perhaps no role more influential than that of the editor.
Finesse of the Final Cut
By Helga Schier — Books 2 Go
For decades writers (and readers) bemoaned the fact that so many good books remained unpublished. It seemed that the industry’s gatekeepers agents and editors and publishers didn’t even look at your work unless you had amazing pedigree or a publication list a mile long. A first-time writer had a better chance of winning the lottery than getting published.
The self-publishing revolution changed things.

Editing – Translating – Writing
By Helga Schier — With Pen And Paper
Publishing has never been more competitive, yet there have never been more opportunities for writers to publish their work. As fewer traditional publishers pick up ever fewer writers, more and more writers opt to self-publish. Because one thing is still true: a good book will find its readers. No matter whether you are hoping to find an agent and a publisher or are planning to publish yourself, you will need a good book to be successful. And that’s why you hire an editor; because an editor can help you write the best manuscript you possibly can.
